The Straight A Advanced Gentle Retinol Treatment uses Encapsulated Retinol (a safe derivative of Vitamin A without BHT) combined with two forms of “Botanical Retinols” – Bakuchiol and Moth Bean Extract – to significantly improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles, promoting plumper, smoother, more radiant, healthier-looking skin
As part of the potent – yet gentle-acting formulation, Maya Chia uses the highest quality shelf-stable Vitamin C, along with Vitamin E to help brighten and reduce hyperpigmentation while they include other carrier oils that are rich in naturally-occurring Vitamin A. Nutrient-dense botanicals such as chia seed and Buriti oil help to moisturize and nourish and achieve the same results as a Retin-A product without the associated irritation.
This impressive concentrated Retinol (Vitamin A) formulation earns an “A” for efficacy – and that is why we call it The Straight A Treatment..
Note: Retinol (without BHT) is the safe Vitamin A derivative, not to be confused with Retinyl Palmitate, which one study shows may enhance tumor growth in the presence of UV light, or Isotretinoin, which dermatologists prescribe for severe acne.
Use at night only. Apply a thin layer of the Advanced Gentle Retinol Treatment after cleansing and misting. Follow with an application of moisturizer as needed, such as the Super Couple Face Oil, the Supercritical Face Oil or The Super Blend Moisture Concentrate. Retinol serums should be avoided if you are pregnant or nursing. Please use sunscreen daily, as retinoid products do have exfoliating properties.
